The problem with menswear is that most of the time the choices are quite limited. So even if someone wants to try out a new idea, they might not be able to find anything beyond the more traditional options. The good thing is that men’s fashion is slowly transitioning towards more varied offerings, so that nobody feels boxed into a style they don’t feel is them.
Ryan Gosling is a perfect example of a man with an eclectic style that doesn’t require of more than one closet’s worth of items. This actor’s outfits show us new ways to use clothing we have stuffed in the back of our drawers or closets and give our everyday look a boost.
It usually happens that, on a Monday, we can’t be bothered to think about our look, since all of our energy is focused on being on time. That’s perfectly fine, but classy can be simple too. Take this style of light colored shirt, jeans or khakis, and sneakers.
Whether you’re wearing shades to protect your eyes from the sun or prescription glasses, always consider how the frame matches your personal style as well as your features.
A bomber jacket will always be the best way to top off your look. Wear it over a black or white tee and you’re good to go.
We all remember Gosling’s performance in the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love, as well as the makeover and style tips he gives to Steve Carell’s character. It’s a simple look of dress shirt, trousers, and brogues. If you have an event or big meeting coming up, don’t be afraid to try out a new bold color for your suit like electric blue or mahogany.
A great haircut and well-kept facial hair can become your best allies. You can trim or let your beard grow depending on your mood and particular look you’re going through.
There’s nothing that can make or break your outfit quite like a nice pair of boots. Whether shiny black or scuffed, combat boots will always be your closet’s secret weapon.
One way to bring attention to your arms during a semiformal affair is by rolling up the sleeves of your shirt.
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do with your style. You can always find a way to reach the perfect balance of comfort and fashionable
